Since the individual chooses to be a homosexual, they should not be given special privileges. Another argument that you hear is that these couples should not get married simply because of the torment and ridicule they would be faced with in their everyday lives. There are news reports from across America telling about how a gay person was beaten or killed just because they were looked at as different. Some of these people would end up the target of verbal abuse and maybe even physical abuse, just because some heterosexual people see them as different.
Gays also feel scared to be themselves in the world. Also, gays get bullied all of the time for having a different sexuality and sometimes get ignored by family or even friends after coming out which is not fair. First of all, it wasn’t a person's choice to become
A lot of people judge each other by a different number of things. But the most discrimination next to racism is homosexuality. The reason a lot of people think it is wrong because they think it is sick and it is not normal for other people to see homosexuals kissing or engaging in sexual intercourse. Overall Homosexuals have it hard in the U.S. but not only here but around the world, some countries or religions kill people if they are gay. What I think about that is that I think it’s very wrong and people do not realize that being gay is very hard, and they can’t be put in their shoes to see how it is.
as a result of that they made they are savagely abused (physically verbally and emotionally) and stripped of the common rights you and I still are able to posses. These people not having these right is not only unjust but it is also unhealthy. It isn't fair that people can be treated so poorly in the world based on a sexual preference and not based on their actions or personality. In other parts on the world lesbian and gays are highly discriminated agents today. In fact out of many social groups like Muslims, blacks, and immigrants or foreign workers the highest social intolerance was towards gay people and astonishing 38% (thesocietypages.org).
A large amount of society feels that if gay people are married the sanction of marriage will become corrupt and will no longer be as important as it currently is. If marriage is such an important sanction between a man and a woman that will be corrupted by gay people, than why are men and women getting divorced each day as if marriage means nothing? Straight people take advantage of the privilege they have to wed, while gay couples have to suffer because they are not considered “normal”. Everyone is so fixed on the point that if they allow homosexuals to marry there will be an increase in the d... ... middle of paper ... ...e many different beliefs of society and religious groups. Although this country prides itself on freedom, the people that live within the country are not allowing for the country to be free by placing judgment on those who are “different”.
Homosexuality was once considered to be a mental illness it wasn’t into 1973 that homosexuality was taken out the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), this cause majority of people to be homophobic and not accept that their homosexual child, so this created a difficult relationship between parent and child. We have to accept everyone the way they are because it is their life and if we do not accept them they will struggle a lot in the society. Some homosexuals get attack in the street, and people treat them as if they were outsiders, hurt them mentally,
Most LGBT anti-discrimination rallies have posters that show the examples of discrimination people have faced. An all too common poster reads, “I am not here anymore.” (Belcher, Participants Demonstrated) (Blogspot, stfu_homophobes.gif) Many LGBTQPIA people lose their lives because they’re different. In a country where people are afraid to be themselves, can America really call herself the Land of the Free? With freedom like that, no one is really free. In a world where I am afraid to love, where I am afraid to tell people, where I am afraid for my life, in a world where people are afraid of me for no reason, in a world where people who have never met me already hate me just because of who I am, I don’t think ANYONE has the right to say “We are free.”
There are gay firefighters, police officers, doctors, state and federal officials. Most, if not all, will not openly admit it due to the sole fact they are terrified it would jeopardize their career and character. If the world was not so judgmental
Time and again the matter of rights for homosexuals has been raised all across the world, even today collective acceptance of gay men and women is not easy to come by. They have found it severely arduous to fit in whether it is in the workplace or a teenager at school, that is the reason why some find it necessary to cover their sexuality. There are around 9 million gay, lesbian or bisexuals in the Unites States alone. The effect of covering one’s sexuality has consequences to all diverse types of people: young, mid age and elders. In todays society being a homosexual is abnormal, people look down upon them and class them as unnatural and not quite the same.
There are a few states which formed a type of commitment called a "civil union", which basically is marriage without using the word "marriage." Gay couples are denied significant rights when they are not allowed to marry, and these result in injustices within society. Most carry the burden of hiding their sexual identity for fear of being disrespected or mistreated by the general population who remain ignorant to the causes and circumstances of homosexuality. This puzzles many due to the excess amount of investigative work that has been done on the phenomenon, as well as puzzling the church as to who would want to look into the concept in such a sinful matter. The question of homosexuality being a choice lives in the front lines of criticism, with many believing that one chooses to be lesbian, gay, or bisexual (LGB).
